Summer School Painlessly

online learningDo you dread making your children do anything during the summer? I do… I know they work very hard during the school year, and I like to let them have some carefree summer days full of play. Yet, on the other hand… I know that they need to be challenging their brain to keep from losing all the wonderful things that they learned last year.

So, this poses a problem. I know they need to do some summer homeschool, yet I also want them to enjoy time playing. Over the past few years I’ve found that if I set up their laptop’s browser bar with bookmarks for sites that I want them to visit each week – I can remind them to go do it… without having to watch over their shoulders. They can  accomplish this task painlessly and all while having fun. You see, I try to choose sites that really incorporate alot of fun into their learning. A few of our favorite online summer school sites include:

Geography Games

Math games

Spelling Games

Online Flashcards

    Thanks for these. I refuse to let the kids sit and do nothing all summer. 🙂

    I remember being in school, and as much as I loved it when summer break rolled around, I was always ready for school to start back about half way through the summer, lol. On top of that, it seemed to take SO long to get back into the swing of a school day! Like you, I want my kids to have some play time during the summer, so we technically have “school-lite.” I don’t want them to do *nothing* but I don’t want them to feel burdened. Many of our favorite summer-ish school things to do are the same as yours. Easy and fun game play. 🙂
